ILS are backed by a supervisory mechanism that is unique at international level. It is based on the evaluation by independent experts of the manner in which standards-related obligations are complied with and the examination of cases by the ILO's tripartite bodies.

In collaboration with the International Labour Standards Department (NORMES), we train ILO constituents to address ILS implementation gaps and to participate actively in the procedures of standard setting, submission, ratification, and supervision, including the fulfilment of ILS reporting obligations under the ILO Constitution.
